Professor Neil McIntyre, born and raised in the Rhondda Valley, trained at King's College London and King's College Hospital from 1951 to 1958. After resident house jobs at King's College Hospital and Hammersmith Hospital he was called up for National Service and spent almost two years in Aden with the RAF.

In 1963 he joined the Medical Unit of the Royal Free Hospital (Gray's Inn Road) headed by the famous hepatologist Sheila Sherlock. He was an MRC Research Fellow, her registrar, and then Lecturer in Medicine supervising the Unit's beds at the old Lawn Road (Hampstead) branch of the Royal Free Hospital.

From 1966 he spent two years as an MRC Travelling Fellow at Harvard Medical School (working in the Gastrointestinal Unit of Massachusetts General Hospital).

He returned to the Royal Free Hospital as a Senior Lecturer and Honorary Consultant, with beds and a laboratory at Lawn Road. Promoted to Reader in 1973 he was awarded a personal chair in 1979, and when Dame Sheila retired in 1983 he was appointed to succeed her as Chairman of the Academic Department of Medicine. From January 1993 to December 1995 he was Vice-Dean of the Royal Free Hospital School of Medicine and a Continuing Trustee for ten years following it merger with UCL in 1998.

He was the first of the clinical and academic staff to work in the Royal Free Hospital at Hampstead - initially occupying a make-shift laboratory near its entrance and a temporary office on the 10th floor.

A keen medical historian from his student days he has, since retiring in 1999, spent much of his time working on this book and on other historical topics.
